Could be electrical or fuel related. Misfiring spark plugs cause a lag that feels jerky and can kill an idling engine. A lack of proper fuel pressure from a faulty fuel pump or component can do the same. Might be a defect in the Throttle Position Sensor, a dirty Mass Airflow Sensor. Might be dirty fuel injectors. You need to have a mechanic diagnose this then fix it.
